EXCLUSIVE: Ben Rappaport, the star of NBC’s comedy series Outsourced, has been tapped as the lead of another comedy series project, ABC’s pilot Awesometown (formerly Dusty Goes To Awesometown and untitled Adam Sztykiel). The comedy pilot, from writer/executive producer Sztykiel and 20th Century Fox TV, is described as a raw, hilarious peek behind the curtain of modern twentysomething relationships. It centers on Dusty (Rappaport), a twentysomething guy who had been with the same woman, now his wife, since 8th grade. After he catches her cheating, he gets a divorce and, still a total mess in the aftermath, moves into an apartment shared by his co-worker Andrew (Nick Kocher) and roommate Oliver (James Earl III). Rappaport is with Gersh and Invictus Entertainment.
